A Safari of Self Discovery

I was fortunate enough to be invited by Stefan Swanepoel to read an advance copy of his newest book “Surviving Your Serengeti“. The book can only be aptly described as an incredible ‘Safari of Self Discovery’!

So often business books bombard you with textbook style writing to get their point across. Stefan skillfully guides you through a safari of the Serengeti animal kingdom in a fictional format that eloquently teaches you the the seven skills to be learned from these fascinating creatures. Once Stefan has pulled you into this incredible safari you find yourself instantly comparing the wildlife lessons learned from the Cheetah, Lion, Elephant, Giraffe, Crocodile, Mongoose, and Wildebeest to your own life and business. Swanepoel keenly wraps up the lessons learned in a great summary of each animal and skill at the end of the book.

The book will be available on March 1, 2011 and I highly recommend you take this amazing safari for yourself! As you wait for the book to be released I would suggest that you take the quiz today to find out what kind of animal you are:

I am confident you will find this book as captivating and educational as I did. In case you are wondering, I am a Cheetah. I asked my Executive Team at the Utah County Association of REALTORS® to take the quiz and it was interesting to find out what animal each of them exhibit in their skill sets. This has helped us to understand better how each person operates and how we can interact better with each other.

Mark your calendars for March 1, 2011 and take your own ‘Safari of Self Discovery’!

    I took the test and I am a CROC.
    Now I’m anxiously awaiting the book so I can better understand what that means.
    In the meantime – I’ve been searching eBay for Pink Izod’s just in case.

    Ready to bring back the double popped collar!
    (They go well with my extensive Members Only Jacket collection)

    Mike, I’ve always heard you were a croc…maybe that was out of context.

    Looking forward to reading this book, especially after reading your blog.

  3. Thanks for taking the Safari of Self Discovery with me Chris….and thrilled you are a cheetah!! See you soon!
